Causes of a Blocked Kitchen Sink

1. Food Waste

Food waste is one of the most common causes of a blocked kitchen sink. Bits of food can get stuck in the drain and cause buildup, leading to a clogged sink.

2. Grease

Pouring grease down the sink can also cause blockages. Grease solidifies when it cools down, sticking to the inside of the pipes and narrowing the space available for water to flow through.

3. Soap Scum

Soap and other cleaning products can leave a residue that builds up inside the pipes, making it more difficult for water to flow freely.

4. Foreign Objects

Items such as hair, paper towels, and other debris can accidentally fall down the drain and cause a blockage.

Solutions for a Blocked Kitchen Sink

1. Plunger

Using a plunger can be an effective way to clear a blockage. However, it is important to use the right type of plunger and apply the proper technique for it to work.

2. Baking Soda and Vinegar

A mixture of baking soda and vinegar can be poured down the drain to dissolve the blockage. Leave it for a few minutes before flushing it with hot water.

3. Hydro-Jetting

Hydro-jetting is a powerful method that uses high-pressure water to clear the blockage and clean the pipes.

Preventing a Blocked Kitchen Sink

1. Dispose of food waste properly

To avoid a blocked kitchen sink, it is important to dispose of food scraps properly. Instead of putting them down the drain, it is best to dispose of them in the bin or compost. Before washing dishes, scrape leftover food into the bin or compost.

This can prevent food scraps from accumulating in the sink and clogging the drain. By incorporating this simple habit into your routine, you can help prevent blockages and keep your kitchen sink working efficiently.

Remember that preventing a blocked kitchen sink starts with small actions, such as proper food waste disposal, that can make a big difference in the long run.

2. Use a sink strainer

Using a sink strainer is an effective way to prevent a blocked kitchen sink. Sink strainers are designed to fit over the drain and catch food scraps and other debris before they go down the pipes. This can prevent blockages from forming and help keep your plumbing system running smoothly. Sink strainers are easy to use and can be cleaned or emptied into the bin.

They are a simple yet effective solution for maintaining a clean and functional kitchen sink. Incorporating a sink strainer into your daily routine can save you time, money and frustration in the long run.

3. Regular Maintenance

Regularly cleaning your sink and pipes can help prevent blockages from building up over time.

Left a message on a Sunday, was contacted back the same day and an appointment made for next day. They arrived exactly on time prepared a quote on the spot and although much more expensive than I anticipated, I approved the works.

Petris was great. Quote was below others, he adjusted timing based on our needs, we got an sms heads up when he was coming, he put on some doctors like slippers to avoid dirtying our floors and then did the job quickly. Highly recommended.

Made an emergency call for badly leaking under basin hose. Petros sounded friendly and efficient even on the phone. He was at our house in no time at all, identified what he needed to do, drew up a quote for us to sign and then got on with the job.
